: 'CARTS—OLD AND NEW'

A talk by William Holt
The restriction of petrol has brought back into service many kinds of horse-drawn vehicles which seemed to have had their day. William Holt , the Yorkshire author, who comes from a district noted for the fine craftsmanship of its carts and waggons, is going to speak about some of these vehicles.
He is a Todmorden man and goes to great pains to point out that he originates from twenty yards on the right side of the Yorkshire and Lancashire border. He means he is a Yorkshireman. He started his working life as a weaver in a cotton factory, has travelled in most parts of the world, has written a number of novels, and acted as a war correspondent during the Spanish Civil War.

: THE REICHSTAG FIRE TRIAL

Time: September 21-December 23,
1933
Place: The Supreme Court of the German Reich, Leipzig
Defendants: Van der Lubbe, Torgler,
Dimitrov, Tanev, Popoff
Indictments: ' Actions preparatory to high treason, with the object of changing by violence the Constitution of the German Reich, and in particular firing, or attempting to fire the Neukollen Welfare Office, the Berlin Town Hall and Palace, and the Reichstag'
A radio reconstruction produced by Laurence Gilliam
The Reichstag was set on fire a week before the elections of March, 1933, as a result of which the Nazi Party achieved power in Germany. Six months later the Reichstag Fire Trial opened at Leipzig. Five men were accused of committing the crime as agents of German Communism. The Nazis made strenuous efforts to prove before the world in open court that their political opponents were the authors of the crime that had given them power. Now, seven years later, on the anniversary of its opening, the Reichstag Fire Trial is re-enacted, a perpetual reminder of the basis of Nazi power.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
